Liability For Latham Car Accidents
Head-on collisions are among the most dangerous types of collisions that a person can be involved in. They account for only around 2% of all traffic collisions but over 10% of all traffic fatalities. According to the FMCSA, “Motor vehicle crashes are complex events. Usually they involve two or more vehicles. Elements that influence the occurrence of a crash may take place hours, days, or months before the crash.” Victims of head-on collisions tend to suffer very serious and costly injuries.

Any person that is injured due to the negligence of another driver may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
